Hello, all, Don and Stan,

There was a rocket powered wing: the MX-324,that was the direct
forerunner of all the great x-planes of the 50's , it's
exsistance wasn't revealed until 1947, of course it was limited
to short flights, and took to the air under it's own power.

There was a Jet version that was given a P -something number
that was as nearly limited as the MX-324. These prototypes never
left Muroc (Edwards). The Hortons never had anything on John
Northrop IMHO.

Back in '43,to '44 there was a piston (R-2800) prototype called
the XP-58 Black Bullet, it should have been called something
else:"The Turned Turtle" as I recall, both prototypes crashed, -
on takeoff, and were hated by all who had to get near one.

None of these could be candidates for Arnold's craft, (ditto the
Hortons) because of the numbers, and the sheer technical nature
of flying one of the beasts.
